Yes, and some building in Romania (?).

By the way I am from Osage if you know where that is. Get up there for a few weeks every summer to visit family and race motocross. NOT going up there in the winter! Spent 23 years there until I finally got out in '80, I hate snow!

Since this will be new ground i suggest you let him get about 4 or 5 pages deep before the attack and make sure you copy all the post to a word processor so when the deleteing starts you will have references. I could do this for a small fee, or a slipper clutch, not that i would use a slipper clutch, but i could put it on display as a collectors item to show the grandkids one day...
It's unfortunate that some of us still continue to 'harass'/ 'poke'/ make fun of that poor man even after all this time, and continue to do so when he is 'off' the forums on a trip . Whether you r jesting or not, makes no diff. You must be so proud of yourselves.

Let it go guys.

I agree. His intention is sincere. All he was trying to do all that time was help others.

Raced Muddy Creek a few times, qualified for Loretta's there back in '05 (?) in the 45+ class. Shame about Kevin Walker, I stayed at his house that year!

Anyway I think we have strayed about as far off topic as we should.

Back to Heli's, I am semi retired and have a lot of free time so I needed something to take it up. These aren't too expensive (compared to MX and paintball), and are a blast to fly. Been thinking about getting a couple Genius CP's and then sell one later and get a Mini CP when they work the bugs out if they find any. I have a Solo Pro now so it will be a pretty big jump from what I understand. All this big talk and I have been flying a total of 3 weeks .

Hey HF. My heli did not come with a manual so I had no idea that was an adjustment pot. I can check it out later to see if it does effect the gyros or not. Thanks for the info. In any case, it did not need any adjusting at all to do 3D or very stable sport flying. Pretty nice for straight out of the box.


Dkfuji,

Thannk you so much. i got your pm, and will try to contact you this weekend. maybe we can set something up. i promise we wont take up much of your time, maybe 30 minutes if thats ok with you.

right now it is hard for me and my friend to progess because its just us. we would like someone to tell us what we are doing wrong. i've read lots of post over and over, but sometimes i just gotta see it in person.

THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!

I was trying to have fun; however, hoped my post would be understood in such a way that everyone would be laughing, including Bo!

I think Bo came very close to doing an excellent job of trying to meet his objectives of helping others in the above referenced thread. He started the thread, and had foresight to reserve the first few posts in his "name", so he could upgrade them over time as he became aware of better solutions. It was my understanding, that his first few posts were the "thread", and the remaining posts were for other's suggestions/discussions. I was one of the first to post praise for his constructive efforts in that thread as well as others.

IMO, as you stated, Bo's biggest mistake might have also been his ego. It appeared as if he got so carried away with his ego, that he forgot he had absolute control of the beginning (the "real" substance) of his thread. In fact, his ego may have gotten such a hold of him, that he deleted not only the "drama" that most didn't enjoy repeatedly reading over and over again, but also his initial posts that many wanted to see, and posted thanks for (including myself). I think if his heart was truly in the right place (put his ego aside?), he would have done the right thing, and kept what he truly thought was right.

I wish everyone the best

I'm sure those will get snatched up quick, but I'll wait a few batches/revisions myself.

If it is not dispatched by the end of this week, you are going to run into the Chinese New Year holidays in Hong Kong as well, and that includes the postal services.

"Full Moon"

Sounds like a good excuse to me!

It's nice to see so many smiling faces in one spot.

Hi, I own an IT company, have wife and child, living in a big city in China. tomorrow I will drive 8 hours (more than 700KM) to meet my parents (and parents-in-law), and live with them during the Chinese New Year holidays.

This is THE TRADITIONAL in China. yes it is the largest humanity migration in earth, makes everything inconvenient. I do not like it but I must do it .... every year. =(

hope you can understand it.
